Australian Aboriginal Astronomy

By Duane Hamacher

Welcome to our blog on Australian Indigenous Astronomy.  We will be posting the results of our latest research, providing you with educational material, and informing you of upcoming talks, meetings, and conferences.

I will begin posting in Early March, 2011.


This project is dedicated to the hundreds-of-thousands of Indigenous Australians who lost their lives, languages, and culture after the British colonisation of Australia in 1788.  We acknowledge the Indigenous people of Australia, both past and present, especially the Dharug people, who are the Traditional Owners of the land on which Macquarie University is situated.


  1. Thank you very much for creating this blog Duane and sharing this information. I look forward to using it in Teaching and promoting it to colleagues!

  2. Cheers! I'll be posting about once per week and I'm inviting other researchers to contribute, so long as it is rigorous.

    Enjoy! :-)
